Arsenal fail transfer deadline move for Championship wonderkid

Arsenal have failed in their transfer deadline day attempt to sign Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports from the Mirror.

Gunners ace Serge Gnabry was being enquired by the Cottagers during the January window, which saw Arsenal keen on signing Sessegnon in exchange.

However, Fulham were reluctant and thus refused to let go of their youngster, with Sessegnon already being considered as one of the best left-sided attackers since Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale.

But it seems that Arsene Wenger and his scouting team will try once again at the end of the season, in the hopes of securing a deal for the current England U-16 captain in the summer.

Gnabry could once again be used as bait by the Gunners, but Charlton are also monitoring the German, who has just returned from West Bromwich Albion following a loan deal.

Sessegnon has yet to make an appearances for the Fulham first-team.
